Our team has been busy crunching the numbers and can exclusively reveal the postcodes, states and regions that take out the title of Australia’s 2018 Lottery Hotspots. 

Between 1 December 2017 and 30 November 2018, there were 439 division one winning entries held by our players across the country that delivered more than $1.06 billion in division one prize money. WOW! That’s more than a winner a day!

But which state or territory enjoyed the most division one wins during the past 12 months?

Victoria has snapped up the title of most division one wins for the third consecutive year with a total of 130 division one wins in the state across all our games. Can you believe these wins delivered more than $313 million in division one prize money – more than any other Australian state or territory?!

New South Wales and Australian Capital Territory were hot on Victoria’s heels with a massive $293 million in combined division one prize money won by our lottery players.

Sunny Queensland takes out the honours of the state with the biggest individual division one prize won in Australia during the past 12 months. You may remember the retired Burleigh Heads man who took home the out-of-this-world $60 million Powerball prize only a few weeks ago. He’s had a year to remember and no doubt has exciting plans for 2019!
